New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum's spectacular
match-saving knock of 302 in the Wellington test against
India has helped him jump eight places to a career-best 12th
in the latest ICC player rankings for test batsmen.
Amid the hearty, and heartfelt congratulations resonating
around the country in the wake of the 1-0 cricket series win
over India, spare a thought for the man calling the shots.
Otago cannot win the Plunket Shield but it can take some
consolation in a gutsy match-saving innings of 155 not out
from Michael Bracewell.
In offices throughout the country, people huddled around
television sets hoping to watch ''our Baz'' create history.
